Random blabber!! (and NOTD)

Sorry again for the lack of posts. I'm in the process of moving back to uni so been busy packing!

I was hoping to do another E.L.F haul but it decided to get lost in the post and the E.L.F people have told me I have to wait until it's been 2 weeks since the dispatch date and then they'll look into it, so annoyed!! 

So I won my first giveaway this week over on Stylefrost's blog. Go check her blog out she does really great OOTD (outfit of the day) posts. 

So I've given my blog abit of a spruce up, was getting kinda bored of the old format. Hope you guys like it :)

And of course another NOTD. I remembered Kim Kardashian doing a twitpic of her white nails a couple of months ago and just decided to try all white nails. They're definitely "illuminating", kinda weird getting used to but now I love them. I've used Barry M nail paint in "Matt white".

NOTD: Emerald City

Been on the hunt for a deep forest green nail polish and this is the best I could find. It's by Revlon and it's part of their new Autumn/ Winter collection. This is 1 of 2 Matte nail polishes they've released. You can check out the rest of the collection on, she's also included some swatches (love the look of the Smoked Peach lipstick!!)

It's much greener in real life, was kinda hard to capture on camera. The shimmer in the nail polish gives the nails more of a satin looking finish but it is matte!! The wear of this polish isn't that great, only had it on for a day and already have some tip wear :(

(was having fun with the colour accent mode on my camera!)

I really love the colour of this polish and wish it would photograph better!! I think this would be a perfect colour for winter time as it quite christmassy looking, the shimmer and the deep green colour kinda reminds me of a christmas tree!!

It retails for £6.29 which may seem abit much but there is a whole 14.7 ml of product. I just wish it was more long lasting.

Superdrug haul/ NOTD

So this is a little Superdrug haul. Just got some things I really needed.

1. Batiste Coloured Dry Shampoo
I've used the original one before and loved it. It was great to use when I didn't have time to wash my hair but I didn't like the fact the it left some white residue behind, kinda looked like really fine dandruff!! But the coloured one is amazing, it's black so no visible residue!! :)

2. Carmex
I've been really late in jumping on the Carmex bandwagon. I like it but don't really think it's that amazing, it has no colour so it's abit blah. I prefer my bodyshop Born Lippy strawberry lip balm which has a slight pink tint and smells amazing. It really helps to bring out the natural pink in my lips and is so moisturising.

So there was a 3 for 2 offer on Rimmel:
3. Rimmel natural bronzer in Sun light
Was looking for a matte bronzer and this looked matte when I was in the shop but when I tried it at home, it had noticeable shimmer. Damn Superdrug lighting :(

4. Rimmel eyebrow pencil in 004 black/brown
I love this! My brows are near enough black but I didn't want to use a black brow pencil. But this is a really dark brown, just the perfect shade for my brows :)

5. Rimmel lycra pro nail polish in Beige Babe
A gorgeous greige colour, just perfect for autumn. It applies easily, needs two coats for opaque coverage.

First E.L.F haul

I've been wanting to order from ELF cosmetics for some time. They have great quality products at really affordable prices, only problem is they never seem to have anything in stock!!

So they recently had a big delivery and I was finally able to order a few things I had wanted. They also had a free shipping code too. They usually give out discount codes on their
acebook page, for every 1000 'likes' they get. These discount codes aren't as great as the American site but its better than nothing :)

So here's what I got

1. Studio Blush And Bronzer Compact
2. Mechanical Eyelash Curler
3. Nail Polish in Mod Muave
4. Studio Powder Brush
5. Tone Correcting Concealer in Honey (light)
6. Wet Gloss Lash And Brow Clear Mascara

Everything from their Studio line is £3.50 and everything else is only £1.50. Great way to add to your make-up bag without stretching the purse strings too much :)

Reviews on these products will be coming up as and when I use them. But from initial impression I'm really happy with these products!!

Models own it so I should too :)

So recently I've gone crazy (probably end of summer boredom) buying stuff online. So I've got many a hauls coming up for you guys.

I'm gonna start with Models own. They recently had a 50% of sale online so I ordered a few things. I would've got more but their website was crazy slow and I just didn't have the patience.

So I first thing I got was the 6-way nail buffer

And then the polishes from left to right are:
1. Nude Beige
2. Pastel Pink
3. Lilac Dream
4. Tickled Pink

All only £2.50 each!! I've already tried the nude beige and absolutely love it! The formula is so creamy and applies like a dream, could do with a slightly larger brush though. Each polish contains 14ml.

They're delivery was crazy quick too. I put in my order at like midnight on Wednesday night and recieved it on Friday morning.
